april showers bring gorgey giveaways.

have you ever desperately wished to win your own giveaway? i'm finding myself in that particular boat this week.

i purchased the loveliest rainy-day print from sarah jane studios a couple months back, planning to give it away (with a pair of raindrop earrings) to my equally lovely blog friends.

but then it arrived.

and it was all timeless and delightful and gorgeous beyond all reckoning, and suddenly i was not feeling quite so magnanimous.

however, i have since given myself several stern talkings-to, and here we are, reluctantly charitable once again.


print + earrings:

april giveaway [3]
april giveaway [2]
april giveaway [1]

sarah jane draws these illustrations in walnut ink and prints them herself on hahnemühle museum etching paper. peruse more of her work here. (july's dilemma and time for a walk are my current veryfavorites.)

the raindrop earrings i've made from sterling, amazonite stone, and green czech glass.

to enter, just leave me a comment below! tweet or facebook for extra entries.

the april giveaway will close friday, april 16th at midnight est.
bonne chance!

the fine print: i purchased this print myself; i am in no way affiliated with sarah jane studios. furthermore, sarah jane studios is not endorsing this giveaway nor this blog, and i am in no way compensated for this promotion. i just really like her stuff. and i really like you. you're welcome.


UPDATED APRIL 17th: we have winner! mindy, this is your happy day. thanks everyone, for your generous comments!
